Footnotes

  • A make virtually unknown outside its native France, Delaugère et Clayette, of Orléans manufactured automobiles from 1901 to 1926. The firm built tricycles, quadricycles and single-cylinder runabouts to begin with, but by 1903 had progressed to larger motor cars constructed along Panhard lines. These more advanced designs were powered by twin- and four-cylinder engines incorporating automatic inlet valves, and featured side chain drive, the largest being a 20hp car. Four models were offered for 1905 with horsepower ratings of 10/12, 12/15, 16/22 and 24/32CV, the three larger types being powered by four-cylinder engines equipped with mechanically operated inlet/exhaust valves.
    This Delaugère et Clayette Landaulet is powered by a four-cylinder engine of 120x150mm bore/stroke (capacity 6,789cc) rated at 24hp (20hp by the French rating). The vehicle has been provisionally dated (in 1974) by the Veteran Car Club as of 1904 manufacture and has taken part in various VCC Brighton Runs. Its accompanying VCC Vehicle Registration/Dating form refers to this car’s unusual valve layout, stating that the presence of pushrod-operated inlets ‘would appear to suggest that it has been modified from its original automatic inlet valve system’. There is a blanking-off plate on the car which states ‘1905 Delaugère’, which is believed to have been attached when it was converted by the factory from low-tension ignition to magneto. Other noteworthy features of this well built and most handsome motor car include a luxuriously appointed passenger compartment; ivory door handles; Brennus horns; Pelgrims opera lamps; Howes & Burley self-generating lamps; a Dubrulle six-drip oiler; and AA Full Member’s badge to the radiator.
    Imported into the UK in 1973, ‘AA 279’ was restored some 15-or-so years ago and again more recently, and is presented in good, running condition. The car is offered with the aforementioned VCC registration form, Science Museum Certificate, assorted Delaugère-related literature, sundry restoration invoices and Swansea V5 registration document.

Saleroom notices
